WordGirl episodes are divided up into eleven-minute segments. Unlike the first three episodes, each begin with verbal instructions to listen for two words that will be used throughout the plot of that episode. The words (examples include "diversion", "cumbersome," and "idolize") are chosen according to academic guidelines. The reasoning is that children can understand words like "cumbersome" when WordGirl said that it means "big and heavy and awkward."

Parts 1 and 2: Miss Power and her sidekick, Colonel Giggle Cheeks, have come to earth. WordGirl wants her to teach her everything she knows.
